Why Move to Australia?
The Australian life style is unprecedented any where else in the world. The relaxed and laid back culture, coupled with a society that is open and tolerant of foreign cultures has created an environment where individuals can achieve their ambitions and goals that may have not been possible in their home countries.
Australia appreciates and fosters the differences in others as the it remembers that the large majority of its citizens had arrived on its shores from another part of the world.
Australia is a safe and friendly country. Australia is a very safe country compared with almost anywhere in the world. Political unrest is limited in Australia, crime rates are low and strict gun control laws provide a safe environment.
The Australian Economy is strong and resilient, boasting as one of the very few world economies that largely avoided the recent Global Financial Crisis.
Australia’s strong mineral exports, service provider industries and highly progressive education sector, all contributed in Australia having the infrastructure and means to maintain its incredibly high standard of living.
The main purpose behind the Australian Government’s high interest in skilled migration is because of the frequent complaints made by the industry sector specifically regarding the insufficient number of workers to fill all of the growing jobs in the mining, production and service providers. This need is illustrated by the Government in a recent media release by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in November 2011 reporting the national unemployment rate being at a low 5.2 per cent. This is almost half of the unemployment rates of United Kingdom and the United States of America.
The Australian government has estimated that Australia will require a further 2.4 million skilled workers in the next four years to keep up with employer demand.
The Australian economy is not only strong at the present moment, it has also been recently announced that the current industries, in particular to the mining industry, will be investing heavily to expand their operations as to harvest the new found minerals within the Australian outback.
This will not only create opportunities in the mining sector but also in supporting fields as communities rapidly grow to satisfy the skilled workers demanded in the local mining regions.
